Quote: “a thing worth doing…”

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”

G.K. Chesterton wrote this observation in his book, What’s Wrong with the World, (1910), in a chapter related to the education of children.

It is a catchy quote and worth thinking about (even if done badly … NOT).  Take heart:  Chesterton was a person who stood up for the amateur vs. professional, the generalist vs. the specialist.   You can read some explanation of it without having to look for the book, by going here: http://www.chesterton.org/discover-chesterton/frequently-asked-questions/a-thing-worth-doing/
